Faro, Portugal

We have seen a big increase in groups flying to Faro for their corporate events this year. The surrounding region of the Algarve is fast becoming a key destination and has an excellent array of hotels with meeting facilities suitable for all sizes of groups. Meeting facilities are complemented by an excellent array of leisure facilities, including renowned golf courses. The year-round mild weather and short flight time are also big factors in the increasing popularity of the destination. Group charter is the most efficient way of flying to Faro to maximise time spent there, however if clients also have attendees flying by scheduled airlines from different destination, it is easily accessible.

Airport: Faro airport
Flight time from London:2 hours 40 minutes
Recommended aircraft for 100 passengers: Boeing 737 – 800

Olbia, Sardinia

Olbia provides the gateway to Sardinia's Costa Smeralda and the airport is conveniently located 10 minute drive from the centre of the city and 40 minute drive from the prestigious Porto Cervo. The island boasts a range of hotels, including many four and five star options with good meeting facilities. It is a good location for both incentives and small conferences. The short flight time makes it a good destination for a one or two night event. Olbia has less frequent scheduled flights from London, particularly in the off-peak season, so group charter is the best way to get there.

Airport: Olbia airport
Flight time from London: 2 hour 35 minutes
Recommended aircraft for 100 passengers: Airbus A20 (or Boeing 737 – 800)


Tenerife is well known as a leisure destination, but is also increasing in popularity for groups flying for business. The excellent weather makes it a year-round destination for all types of events. The island is home to many large resorts which are ideal for hosting company events and conferences. For larger scale meetings and exhibitions, there is the Magma Arte & Congresos centre. Although it is a longer flight than other popular European destinations, group charter offers many time saving benefits at the airport itself.

Airport: Tenerife South or Tenerife North
Flight time from London: 4 hours 30 minutes
Recommended aircraft for 100 passengers: Boeing 737 – 800
